TO CRASH INTO HEAVEN

CRASH HEAVEN

HERE’S A SEARCHING QUESTION? 

“If you were to die tonight, and “St Peter” or “Elijah” or “Mohamed” was at the “Pearly Gates of Heaven” and asked you, ’Why should God let you into His Kingdom?’ – what would you say?”
   1) What would your own personal answer be?
   2) What do you think the answer would be from a true believing Christian

THE MOST COMMON RESPONSES ARE:

     a) I am not perfect, but in all honesty, I think I’m a good person.
    b) I sincerely try to keep the 10 commandments,
    c) I always try to do my best ( – although I sometimes fail)
    d) I know I am a good person ( – and at least better than one of my neighbors !)

The answers assume that if a person rates high enough on a divine “scale of goodness”, then that person SHOULD get into “heaven” based on their performance (or merit). The answers from people in other religions have a lot in common with these same answers.

FAITH AND SOCIALISM

ECONOMIC STRUCTURAL DISORDER

There are profound problems with our economic system – a structural disorder of the system itself. We need a critical analysis of the essential dignity of human labor and its priority over the maximization of profits—not just through handouts. Cosmetic changes are not enough.

We need to look at the humanizing role of labor and the equitable distribution of the world’s goods. We need to look at the full value and meaning of work.

FAITH AND SOCIALISM

We have an economy that continues to serve the needs of the rich nations at the expense of the poor. This is not to be considered an antagonism toward the rich, but the defense of the defenseless: the uneducated, the native poor and the immigrant poor who have no voice to speak for themselves.

FAITH AND SOCIALISM

 Do we run a risk that some of the economically oppressed nations of the world will rise in judgment on the rich nations?

WHERE DID IT ALL GO WRONG?

HAVING TWO MINDS

TWO MINDS

When Neymar’s Brazil won gold in its home Olympics in 2016, Neymar took the podium to receive his gold medal with a headband reading “100% Jesus.” Yet this ostensible display of devotion caused controversy, given the star player’s out of wedlock son and public love life. Fame and fortune are always dangerous to the Christian. 

TWO MINDSThere are those who have two minds because one is wavering or inconstant. This person has no settled principles. He is controlled by passion; he may be influenced by popular feeling. In other words, he is inclined to one opinion or course of conduct, and now to another. “A man is of two minds, unstable in all his ways.”      James 1:8  Continue reading HAVING TWO MINDS

TRUTH ABOUT PURGATORY 2

 Purgatory, far from being a “Catholic invention” as most Protestants assume, was believed from the very beginning by Christians.

KEEPING HEAVEN PURE

Those who don’t want their past to be known will experience isolation, until they grow out of their fear and are able to trust. Would their isolation be their purgatory? Purgatory will be our choice not to trust and love, not to open ourselves to the loving, accepting gaze of others. Finally when this stage is passed, those in purgatory will reach the wholeness which God means us to have.

TRUTH ABOUT PURGATORY

“If any person’s work which he has built [on this foundation, that is, any outcome of his effort] remains [and survives this test], he will receive a reward.  But if any person’s work is burned up [by the test], he will suffer the loss [of his reward]; yet he himself will be saved, but only as [one who has barely escaped] through fire.” 
                                                                                                   1 Corinthians. 3:14,15

This purification purges away all the dross that clings to the soul,
things that Paul describes metaphorically as flammable materials
such as “wood, hay, and straw.” These things are burned away in this
judgment by God. Conversely, that man’s good works — which Paul compares with “gold, silver, and precious stones” — are refined and retained.

Since there are only two ultimate destinies possible for all human
beings, heaven or hell, the issue of purgatory must be understood as
simply a part of the process for some souls who are destined for
heaven. Continue reading TRUTH ABOUT PURGATORY 2

TRUE MIRACLES

BEING OPEN TO MIRACLES

It is the will of God that we should be healed. It is the will of God that we should be awake to love and aware of God’s goodness in our lives. What is the miracle in your life that you need to pray for?

TRUE MIRACLES

If you want to believe in miracles, there is overwhelming evidence from physicians, who witness “life after death” experiences. In 2014 a four year study was made of over 2000 patience, who had some kind of awareness before they were revived from what appeared to be death. Over 46% of the patients experienced seeing light, feeling at peace and having thoughts. Sixty-three of them (2%) had out of body experiences where they could describe in great detail what was happening around them. The scientists who conducted the survey more favorably believed in life without a physical body after death: rather than simply believing that this life is all there is.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

A NOISY MIND

An immoral mind is a noisy mind because it is filled with the clatter of one’s own ego. Other noisy minds lose its center because its energies are scattered over a multitude of concerns: multi-tasking. This is the big flaw of our culture.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

When the mind is quiet, things become clearer. We become aware of what we must do. We must learn to slow down our minds to become more focused and more sensitive to God’s presence.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF PORNOGRAPHY?

Dr. Victor Cline (1996) posited four progressive effects of pornography:

(1) Addiction, where the need to view pornographic materials leads to a loss of free control over behavior;

(2) Escalation, where the person delves into progressively harder pornography, usually to attain the same level of sensation and arousal;

(3) Desensitization, whereby the user is no longer morally sensitive to the shocking, repulsive, perverted, or immoral quality of the material, but instead views it as acceptable and begins to look upon others as objects; and

(4) Acting out, where the fantasizing becomes overt behavior. This includes normalized aggression towards women in sexual and other interpersonal encounters. Pornography kills love!

The issue of sexual addiction is catching society unawares. All around us marriages are beginning to fall apart; husbands are getting caught with pornography, in affairs, and visiting prostitutes.

On a more serious note, there is a proven direct correlation exists between crimes of rape, child abuse, and the physical abuse of a spouse, and the proliferation of pornographic materials in a community (Uniform Crime Report, 1990). One out of every six persons in our federal and state prisons is a sex offender, and sex crimes are second only to drug crimes.

What is the basis for Jesus’ position on pornography?

“But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery in his heart”.                Matthew 5:27-28

  1. Pornography offends against the virtue of chastity: each Christian must respect the sanctity of his own human sexuality. In marriage, the conjugal act ought to express that faithful, permanent, exclusive, self-giving, and life-giving love between husband and wife.
  2. Pornography immerses oneself in a fantasy world, withdrawing from reality. While genuine love always involves a self-giving of oneself for the good of others, pornography entices a person to withdraw into a selfish world of perverted fantasy which may later be acted out to the detriment of oneself and others. This problem has increased dramatically, since the Internet offers “virtual reality” sexual interaction.
  3. Pornography exploits oneself or exploits others in some way for personal pleasure or gain.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

A young man hopes that once he is married, the desires for illicit sexual arousal will subside. But what becomes of his lust once he marries her? It does not disappear; it is foisted upon his wife. The pornography has trained him to react to the sexual value of a woman, and nothing else. He has trained himself to believe that women should be physically flawless and constantly sexually accessible. Even if he rejects this intellectually, the fact remains that his attractions and responses have been conditioned and shaped by warped, pornography-inspired fantasies.

The Cycle of Pornography or the Cycle of Temptation

“Each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”                                                                                                    James 1: 14, 15

Cycle of PornographyIt all starts in the strength of an over-desire that leads into enticement. Many of these desires lead us into a fantasy world looking for some form of relationship. In the fantasy world we are “admired and respected” by beautiful models. We may be looking for a form of refuge from the stresses of life where nothing is asked of you. We may wish to be rewarded or recognized.

Sexual Triggers, such as an attractive person of sex on the computer, start the process. Some triggers are not so obvious such as boredom or stress. This leads to enticement (the first tempting thought), which might be accompanied by an emotion such as frustration

Then there comes a state of conception when desire becomes action, which could be ritual or habitual. You convince yourself that what you are doing is “no big deal”. You are just going to see what is new on line. Then you get closer and closer to indulging yourself (“the birth of sin”).

 After this, the sin grows stronger. You get depressing thoughts such as, “there is no use in resisting this”. After we give in to temptation over and over again and moral brakes become weaker and weaker.

For many men and women who deeply struggle with sexual sin, a feeling of shame clings to them like a wet blanket and often become the biggest barrier against seeking help.

Finally we end up with the wages of sin: death is the consequence of sin. Yet, death isn’t the final stop of life; you still have an immortal soul that can suffer in hell or enjoy heaven: the all-satisfying beauties of Christ can be lost forever in the bondage of lust. Or they can be enjoyed forever in the purity of heart.

Why would I chase something that lasts a moment, when God is eternity and is the truth, Why would I sneak a peak for a moment, look at a woman lustfully for a second, it doesn’t last.

WHAT TO DO?

For those who have severe problems in breaking a habit of engaging in pornography or for those who are addicted, Sexaholics Anonymous is one answer to breaking their addiction: sex with self, promiscuity, pornography, adultery, unhealthy relationships, and erotic fantasy. Like most self-help programs, Sex Addicts Anonymous involves a twelve-step program.

PRAYER OF DELIVERANCE

The deliverance ministry should not be overlooked because JESUS CHRIST himself preached and demonstrated deliverance by casting out demons and healing the sick and delivering all who were oppressed of the devil.

(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, as you read this, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts. This I command in the Name of Jesus.)

Your Christian friend who is sinless can command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love of our Lord.

The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of lust and pornography and I command them to go to the abyss.” The remaining spirits are also delivered in the same manner as listed below.

Prayer of Deliverance

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

IMPERFECT WORLD

SO MANY TODAY FOLLOW THEIR OWN WILL.

Come and be My disciples, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who believe in Me. In the message from the Gospel of Saint Luke, you have My words.

 If you wish to be My disciple, then you must deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow Me. By these words, I wish to call you not to follow your own ideas and objectives but come and do what I ask of you. I want you to follow the mission I gave you knowing in doing My will you will be saved.

So many today follow their own will, which is often influenced by the evil one. He calls them to pursue money and to enjoy all the pleasures of the world. He induces you to drink alcohol and to take drugs and to follow the pleasure of the flesh. In doing this, you are living far from Me and you are destroying your life.

If I have called you to the married life, then follow what My Church teaches you. Live in love with your partner and never say yes to abortion for this is the killing of your son or daughter, the great gift which My Father gave you. You are to love every child from the moment of conception and never entertain the idea of abortion for it is a horrible sin, the killing of a innocent child.

All have to work and follow all the rules you were given to do and all you were asked to do. If you are asked to be celibate then ask Me for the graces you need to live a celibate life and I am your example for I lived a celibate life when I was on earth.

Be a person of prayer and come to Holy Mass every Sunday and during the week if it is possible. I extend My hand to you so take it and walk with Me every day and do not be afraid to carry your cross and I will help you to carry it. I love you with all My heart.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

DELIVERANCE FROM LUST AND PORNOGRAPHY 2

THE AMAZING MAGIC OF DELIVERANCE 2

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

OUR LIFE IN HEAVEN

OUR LIFE IN HEAVENA NEW LIFE IN HEAVEN

We tend to look at the resurrected life in heaven as a great mystery. Yet, the resurrected life is to be found in the present moment.

When the fetus leaves the womb, we call this birth. Once born into the world, the child is more fully alive in new way of living. In the same way, it would make no sense for people of this world not to be born into eternity. The swift aging of our bodies tells us that our hold on earthly life is short.  Our bodies speak to us about impermanence. This tells us that we may not be really at home in this world: our destiny lies elsewhere.

Perhaps the most powerful image of transformation in nature is the butterfly, which is really a transformed caterpillar. Caterpillars appear to have a fairly pleasant life feasting on an almost inexhaustible salad bar right under their feet. One day the caterpillar spins a web around itself. Slowly a change takes place. Suddenly, the tomb-like cocoon opens to reveal a creature that has been totally transformed. The butterfly actually looks quite beautiful. Now instead of only a view from the surface of the leaves, the butterfly sees the entire garden.

KETOGENIC DIET FOR DEPRESSION

KETOGENETIC DIET FOR DEPRESSION

It’s no secret that most people are overworked, under-rested, and living on a poor diet. It’s also no coincidence that the modern advice to eat a diet high in carbohydrates, low in fat, and with constant snacking or small meals throughout the day has coincided with a rise in diabetes, obesity, and mental issues like anxiety and depression.

Depression is no joke. It’s serious. It affects approximately 3 million people every year, just in the US. Approximately 1 in 5 in the US and Canada will experience a mental health illness in any given year , and almost 7% of the population will have experienced a major depressive episode in the past year.

Starting a ketogenic diet, removing high-carb refined foods, losing weight, and eating whole foods is bound to help with mood and make you happier. This alone could have benefits for those with depression. They have studied rats on a ketogenic diet displayed less behavioural despair— meaning they exhibited less hopelessness, and they were more active than the control group not eating keto.

The general consensus is that the brain functions more cleanly and efficiently when a significant portion of its energy comes from ketones, calming overactive and overly-reactive brain cells.

It should be noted that when the body is initially adapting to burning fat instead of glucose, a period known as the “keto flu,” one might feel worse at first. So it may take several weeks or longer for most people to adapt to a low carb diet.

During that transition time when you are first reducing your carb intake, your body has to make new enzymes to burn fat instead of glucose. While it’s busy making these enzymes, and you are eating less carbs, your brain chemistry is changing, and it’s possible to experience lower mood during this time, but it passes once the body adjusts and is able to level out. As your body adapts and learns how to burn fat instead of sugar, mood levels out, and the depressive feelings lift.

LOVING PERSON OF THE SAME SEX 2

loving same sex

WOMAN IS CREATED FOR MAN AND MAN IS MADE FOR WOMEN.

Man and women were not created as solitary beings but as the ones who would recognize each other as flesh of their flesh and bones of their bones, as the ones who are capable of friendship and total surrender to each other, as the ones who are capable of life-giving acts in its many forms. God intended complementary and interdependent relatedness of men and women. God ordered the right proportion so that not one of them would infringe improperly on another. Women are the other side of man, as complementary, rather than inferior.

Of course, man and woman in their sexual union and begetting of children can become co-creators with God. Their love and action can mirror the Love of God. They are to be partners like body and soul which God joined together as one. Yet, sexuality is often encountered as lust or abusive and not life-giving.

God also intended this union to strive to build a spiritual marriage. Couples with a strong shared faith do have an advantage over those who don’t. Husbands and wives who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ are in touch with the Life that pulses at the center of the universe in a way that others can never be.
